BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating Overview

BBB Customer Reviews Rating represents the customers opinions of the business. The Customer Review Rating is based on the number of positive, neutral and negative customer reviews posted that are calculated to produce a score.

Customer Review Experience Value
Positive Review 5 points per review
Neutral Review 3 points per review
Negative Review 1 point per review

BBB letter grades represent the BBB's opinion of the business. The BBB grade is based on BBB file information about the business. In some cases, a business' grade may be lowered if the BBB does not have sufficient information about the business despite BBB requests for that information from the business.

BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating is not a guarantee of a business' reliability or performance, and BBB recommends that consumers consider a business' BBB Rating and Customer Review Rating in addition to all other available information about the business. If the BBB Rating is NR then only Customer Reviews are used for the Star Rating.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I paid for month-to-month tax hotline service. Payment posted to my account and confirmation email was sent to me with tax hotline number. When I called it, a message played saying that the service was no longer valid. Apparently the business closed but is still collecting from people.

Desired Settlement: I want my $49.95 back!

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/09/18) */ We called the member, **** *****, to let her know we are still in business. We tested all of our numbers and they all worked. We will continue to monitor the 800 numbers to make sure none have any message that we are no longer in business. Member was happy we called and will continue her membership. Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 7, 2014/09/18) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) The business must acknowledge that they had an erroneous number for their hotline that DID in fact give a message that the service was no longer available and my account had been cancelled. I have a screen shot of the page that popped up after I signed up and paid for the service. The number given to me for the hotline was XXX-XXX-XXXX. I called that number again today and got the same message. The company rep acknowledged the error to me, but appears to imply that I was incorrect in my claims. The issue has been resolved to my satisfaction, and I am using the hotline now that I have been sent the correct number. It is just important to me that I not be portrayed as incompetent or crying wolf.
